The e-discovery market is a growing one, with Gartner this year estimating electronic data discovery software sales will reach $2.9 billion by 2017. The same research firm just recently positioned where vendors fall in that space, with the release of its Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery software.

A Chat With Gartner About Semantic Tech Earning A Spot As Top Tech Trend In 2013

Earlier this month Gartner named semantic technologies to its top ten trends list (see our story here).

So, semantic technologies’ spot on the list would seem to indicate a bubbling-up of real-world, enterprise interest. As Logan sees it, it’s very much about information overload, about minimizing the risk and maximizing the value of the data on their hands, and about the availability now from providers like Amazon and Google of infrastructures for analyzing Big Data sets.
